Remembering Mayor Murray-
Well, there is enough of this cake to have it and eat it! This was a special cake made by General Mills for the Silver Jubilee. The cake weighed 1,000 pounds, and was 6 feet by 8 feet, and delivered on a flat bed truck. The Honorable Mayor of Wallace, Clyde Murray, is shown here with the ceremonial knife made by Wallace Silversmiths of Wallingford, CT, just for this occasion.
I vaguely remember this cake. What 6-year-old would not remember such a cake?
A special Tribute
On this date, May 16, 1977, the Honorable Mayor, Clyde Murray passed away at the age of 63. His tireless work in making Wallace a special place to live, work in, and grow up in, will be remembered by the citizens both past and present of Wallace. Thank you, Mayor Murray, and special thanks to your family for sharing you with us.
